SUP ACA Certification Class September 9-11 in Buena Vista.

Hey there local and regional SUP shops and paddlers. As SUP instruction is getting more and more popular, so is the need to get instructors certified by the ACA. We are fortunate enough to have Charlie McArthur in Colorado who is a certified examiner and who can host these 3 day courses to educate, train and certify SUP paddlers. He will be teaching the ACA course in Buena Vista, Colorado on September 9,10 and 11th, 2011. Below are some details. It will be a great event for all of us to improve our paddling and our teaching abilities. Hope you can make it, or refer the event to a staff member or friend.
